Puppy and Dog Names by Category

By My Lovely Pups

If you are looking for the perfect name for your new puppy or dog, here are the help. On these pages you will find Puppy and Dog Names with the meaning of the name and/or examples broken down by category, e.g. Cool Names, Cute Names, Funny Names, etc.

Some advice when picking a name - keep it simple. You will use your dogs name well over 30,000 times, so choose a name that is easy for both you and your dog. One or two syllables are much easier for your dog to recognize - and to avoid confusion, do not choose a name that rhymes with a common command like "sit".

The comedian Steven Wright has a funny joke about dog names: "I bought a dog the other day... I named him Stay. It's fun to call him... 'Come here, Stay! Come here, Stay!'"

We have named our puppies and dogs with unique and cute names since dogs have been domesticated. Some names are describing the nature of our dog, like "The Brave One", "Reliable" and other names. Other names refer to the dog's colour like "The Black One", "Snow", "Whitey", and so on. Below you find Puppy and Dog name suggestions sorted into categories which you can browse and easily find the name that suits your new friend best.
